11:06pm
will clear out the protesters, an lapd spokesman says a tactile alert was issued because of an unusual occurrence downtown. you can see large number of protestors in the street. authorities have blocked off -- as the helicopter shot zooms out you can see it. they blocked off part of the roadway and it backed up traffic near city hall. police put up the traffic barriers around the encampment at city hall as the protesters use trash and recycling bins to block the main entrance to the camp. they believe a police eviction is imminent. the mayor said it was time to evict occupy l.a. after learning children were living at the camp. so again as you look at live pictures from los angeles, know hundreds of police officers have been staging, and it appears that they are getting ready to move in and evict occupy demonstrators in downtown l.a. near city hall. back in san francisco, some occupy protestors are
11:07pm
preparing to stand their ground at justin herman plaza. they rejected the proposal to move the camp to another location. john alston is live to explain why they do not want to relocate. >> well, they don't like the new rules against having children at the new encampment as well as the rules preventing the tents from being close together. also, the protesters don't want to move and possibly forfeit their ability to stay here. >> did not represent our needs for a new location to expand to. and it kind of took away our initiative in the whole process. >> tonight protesters had already packed up and thought they would be out of justin herman plays -- plaza reassembled their tents for another night here. >> it screwed up my whole day. hurry up and wait and then not to leave in the end. i sat here every day thinking i was going to leave. i kept waiting for the truck to show up. >> all of the news stuff in the last day.
11:08pm
>> at the general assembly, a liaison with the city told the crowd that san francisco wanted an agreement in the morning and that the group would leave justin herman plaza. wednesday would be a day to look over the logistics of the new location in the mission district, and thursday is a day they would help move. >> what i would like to do is move over to the other side and then come back here and defend my medical tent on the basis of right to assemble. the city would like them to assemble at the high school on mission between 15th and 16th. today workers were sprucing up the grounds while neighbors were dreading what the occupy encampment might bring. >> there is a lot of drug trafficking and crime. 15th and mission, it is well known. i love my neighborhood, but it is known. the people i see down by the ferry building and market, like a hundred feet from that is ridiculous. >> but sam who runs the market across the street is willing
11:09pm
to give it a chance. joy i am not worried about it at all. it is how you communicate with others. i think we have a mutual understanding to get along and respect each other's space and work together. >> but the deal was rejected and they are planing a protest. the protesters concede that some people here at justin herman will go to the new location while others will stay here and risk possible arrest. john alston, abc news. >> thank you. the city of oakland is allowing occupy protestors to put up a tee pea in front of the plaza. every time they tried to put it up police folded it back up. then they issued a 3-day permit requiring the tee pea be taken down, and then no one sleeps in it. they will hold an around the clock vigil at the plaza. and occupy protesters are occupying the port of oakland. the group says it will shut down, quote, wall street on the waterfront on december

>> closed captioning brought to >> closed captioning brought to tonight officials in east palo alto are tired of waiting on the state to protect people. six-year-old torres swraw mora was killed as she walked in the crosswalk of bay road and gloria way. there have been several accidents at that intersection, but not enough to meet state requirements to put up a stot sign. as lisa amin gulezian reports, the city is taking action on their own. >> it takes a second or two to injure or kill a child or a person. >> at tonight's east palo alto city council meeting, the talk was on traffic safety, but the foe cause was on zamora, the
11:15pm
little girl who was fatally killed while crossing the street at bay road and gloria way. since then, the community has demanded change come to this intersection where this year alone another little boy was hit in the same crosswalk. a bicyclist and car collided and a head on crash happened. residents say a stop sign is the answer. >> there is a necessity for the stop sign. >> but the state guidelines require five collisions to take place within a 12-month period to justify installing a stop sign. at bay and gloria there have been four. tonight the city engineer recommended installing flashing led lights. the school crossing signage, high visibility crosswalks, yield signs and no parking signs north of the intersection. >> still think that on top of those improvements the stop signs would help.
11:16pm
>> puting a stop sign there for now makes sense. >> the city can create their own guidelines. tonight the council voted 4-1 to adopt the improvements while continuing to wrork -- to work on a stop sign plan. >> the transportation commission will now review whether stop signs are necessary in that area. if it decides they are, members will write up an ordinance which the council will vote on next month. in east palo alto, lisa amin gulezian, abc7 news. well, starting this week, mcdonalds in san francisco will start charging customers 10 cents extra for toys in happy meals. the fast-food chain found a loophole in the ordinance. the so-called happy meal law allows toys to be included only with meals that meet certain nutritional standards. mcdonalds has made changes including add -- adding apple slices. that's not enough for the new standards. mcdonalds says the money charged for the toys will 2 to the ronald mcdonald house

mcsweeney. this is what you are going to be facing in parts of the bay area in the morning. rapidly changing conditions due to the fog we have a you report photo, foggy in santa clara is up mitted by sammy m. and you will be seeing many scenes like this first thing in the morning. fog has become pretty thick out there. the north bay and down to the peninsula, i want to show you the current visibilities. it is down to an 8th of a mile. let me show you the live picture of the way it looks. this is the bay bridge toll plaza. you can barely see the cars driving into the fog. give yourself some extra time. drive with caution. as you look at the other visibilities, you will notice that is a quarter of a mile in novato. fog is reducing visibility in mountain view. an eighth of a mile at the san jose airport. sfo, not so bad. an eight-mile visibility. we are certainly going to face a potential for some delays at the airports first thing tomorrow morning.
11:20pm
the temperatures right now ranging from 38 in napa to the low 50s in san francisco, oakland and half moon bay. the areas of dense fog tonight. strong winds developing tomorrow with a high wind warning going into affect for the hills. it will continue until thursday afternoon. the lower elevations as i mentioned earlier in the broadcast. there is the front that will set the stage for some changes. the dense fog will quickly clear away as this cold front brings the colder air from the upper layers of the atmosphere and down near the surface. there is not much moisture to deal with. but the higher pressure builds in and it will create gusty northeasterly winds, and that's why we are concerned particularly late tomorrow afternoon and into tomorrow night. that's when we are expecting the strongest winds in the bay area. in the morning, you will need extra time for that morning drive. the upper 30s in the inland east bay and the north bay valleys, so getting chilly out there. you will need a sweater and jacket and areas of dense fog.
11:21pm

he may not be the best wine maker, but he is the
11:25pm
tallest. yao ming hopes to make a big impression on china's wine market by launching his own label. he released a napa cabernet. only 6% of the wines from california come from the united states and they hope ming can gain some market share. ming's wine will be sold in the united states next year for $170 a bottle. so it is high end stuff. >> for a high end guy. not to be confused with 2 buck chuck. >> that's not yao's brand. the blitz was on with david shaw putting on a clinic for the media. and exactly why andrew luck and exactly why andrew luck should win the

hut, hut, hut that's why. those are the three plays or some of the plays that luck calls in the huddle. he decides which of the three they will run in the line of scrimmage and then executes. as coach david shaw explained in his power point display, very unusual to begin with, no other qb in college football does this. so much of stanford's success depends on luck. there is no doubt in his mind who is the best player in the country. >> tango edge, kill spider 2 wide. that's three plays called in the huddle. she making the decision at the last scrimmage. it is unheard of. >> this is the guy you want, size, speed, athleticism, arm strength, competitiveness, leadership, he is the ideal quarterback and the ideal football player you want on your team. >> he lost me at banana zeus 6. control yourself or pay the
